Here's a snapshot of how my brain works:
Last night I talked myself out of working out because I was feeling motivated to work on my book. I got home, dealt with the dogs, ate dinner, and promptly lost all motivation. Spent the rest of the night on the couch watching tv and reading The Forest of Hands and Teeth.
(Note to self: sitting on the couch with a pen and writing journal means nothing unless one actually writes in said journal. Writing fail.)
Motivation to train for the upcoming half (T-minus five weeks!) and/or work on my book is gone. I'm now desperately seeking
Speaking of my book, I believe it can be classified as middle grade. The mc is a 15-yr old boy and he's off on an adventure with his school buddy to save the world. Yeah, that's the macro-level version.
Since I had such great luck asking for dystopian recommendations, I'm now asking for MG adventure book recommendations. I've read the Percy Jackson books, I listened to both The Graveyard book and the first Ranger's Apprentice book on CD, and I've done the Harry Potter/Hunger Games.
The jury's still out on whether or not I want to read the Lemony Snicket books or the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I don't have anything against them, but I just can't get behind them, either.
I realize MG is a huge umbrella and just doing a google search on MG books brings such a wide variety. I'm looking for books geared more toward adventure. First up? Book 1 from The 39 Clues series.
You tell me:
Where is my motivation?
Wait, what? No. Wrong question.
You tell me:
Have any MG adventure books you'd like to recommend?
